The Diva's Coffee Break Designs


Appologies first... I've been trying to find someone who can teach me and give me a few tips here and there, about "BLOGGING"! I am not a computer guru, and therefore, many times I go around and around in circles, and can't seem to accomplish what I'm trying to do. I'm still learning, so PLEASE be patient..... I'm glad I'm better at scrapbooking and card making than I am at blogging!! ;~)

I'm SO EXCITED to be a part of the Diva's Coffee Break Designs design team. It's something I've wanted to do, and am looking forward to forming new friendships, and using the creativity that our great God created me with. The design team will be using ALL Stampin Up products for our cards and any other projects that we share on the blog. All the products .. cardstock, inks, stamp sets, the BIG SHOT, and so many other products are available on my website at Stampin Up! 24 hours a day, 7 days a week... so take time and take a look!!http://denisestoner.stampinup.net/) I would enjoy hearing from YOU!! Check out the DCBD challenges... you'll be glad you did.

The following is my first card I did for the challenge. Our challenges each week will be a little different. Some of the challenges will be color challenges, some will be sketch challenges, and some will be projects done with the Big Shot. This challenge (#116) is a color challenge, where we were to use Green Galore, Tempting Turquoise, Basic Grey, and Whisper White. I used the Dream a Little stamp set (#113435) from Stampin Up. I do hope you like the card.
I don't know about you, but I get so much pleasure from creating cards, that I use my "homemade" cards for my friends and loved ones. These challenges are a great way to build a supply of cards where you will have many choices for every event. Yes, especially the events that are last minute... you will have a card.. your own hand made card! So come along with me, and let's get our collection of cards started.
I have plans to have a "Card Club" where we will make themed cards (3 to 5), and meet once a month at my home.. UNLESS, you and your friends want to meet at your home, let me know. Watch for further details!
Thank you for visiting my little corner of the blogging world. Stop back in and visit!!
May God Bless you and yours!
Denise
